Everything there is handmade. The ice cream is "French recipe" so like a custard and then frozen but with all natural, local and or organic ingredients to make the best tasting flavours of ice cream and sorbet I have ever had! I wish they had more than just the one location but then I guess it wouldn't be as special... More

Stopped here to grab an ice cream. The way prices are listed was very misleading. After paying a whopping 8.40 for 2 small size scoops in a waffle cone our group vouched never to go here again.

Stopped to try some of the ice cream after a friend Jerry from Burdett Alberta told me how great is was. First visit it was hard to get service and no bathrooms. Second trip the ice cream..especially the coconut and fresh berry ice cream was the best.

OK, so I never physically went to this place, but we were staying on the hill and they sold this ice cream in the little general store there. This was probably the most delicious ice cream I have ever had. We had the rocky road and the chocolate. Kids devoured the chocolate and us adults devoured the rocky road. I... More

I'm 40 but I'm serious. This is the best ice cream I've had! Seriously, they make or get the ingredients locally and make their own ice cream! And yes the waffle cones are homemade as well, so it's like eating heaven in a cookie! We're here for a week, and know that we will be return customers!

Hell of a round trip though! The best ice cream ever. 4500 miles is a bit far to the ice cream parlour. When I visit Fernie this is always one of my go to places. This year's favourite is Disco Dan.

Unbelievably good ice cream!! Pretty awesome that they make it all there 👍🏽I had the crazy caramel fudge and it may have been the best ice cream cone of my life.

My raspberry patch. Is. To. Die. For. The fudge caramel (can't recall the exact name) was by far my sons' favourite while mine was My Raspberry Patch. Not too sweet, full of raspberry....
